Abstract:

A series of tests were recently conducted to measure lift and drag forces on a towed circular cylinder, with towing attachment at one end. The studies are aimed at determining the minimal size of tail and body structure that might possibly be used for a dense fish having a cylindrical transducer. This memorandum does not cover the initial tests, results of which will be included in a report after other investigations have been completed it does discuss an interesting phenomenon in the nature of water flow pattern traces that occurred on the cylinder during the towing tests.
